#reintroductions Hi new scholars!
Can't believe I haven't done one for ages, so here goes:
⚕️medical student who is really enjoying it at the moment
🚑 uni-wise, interested in pre-hospital/emergency medicine
🔬 casually interested in #mitochondria and social determinants of health and 🎮 narrative-based games
🎻 plays viola
Not everyone needs FFS, but Nataly's face-dysphoria is pretty intense; we've talked it through, and... yeah. 😟
Please do boost if so inclined.

Child Protective Services, Help needed
Boston CPS has taken kids from my fam. They can't afford a private lawyer, but don't trust the court assigned lawyers or CPS. If anyone knows a lawyer or legal service in MA that would help, please let me know! MA CPS is notorious for their bullshit and my fam is very vulnerable.
asking for help, boosts+
hi! so we're trying to apply for disability/food stamps but until then it looks like we're gonna be struggling for a while. anything you can donate would help us eat and hopefully have something left for bills this month. i really appreciate everyone who has helped and who will help!!! thank you so much
Does anyone know any good places to buy chest binders? And any good resources on how to bind safely? Ideally the shop should be EU-based for shipping cost reasons for my friend, but if you know of any other good places I'd be happy if you linked those too, even if my friend maybe can't use them I'm sure someone can.

Looking for something on my computer and found a motley reading assortment:
Emily Short's Annals of the Parrigues (procedurally generated almanac)
Julian of Norwich's Revelations of Divine Love
Survivors of the early Los Alamos Nuclear Accident report
Also #nowreading Jemisin's The Obelisk Gate
Before jumping into someone else's mentions:
✅ Am I being contrarian?
✅ Do I already have a relationship with this person, or am I being inappropriately familiar?
✅ Am I "ironically" doing exactly what this person just said not to do?
✅ Am I derailing another legitimate discussion in order to get on my own favourite hobby-horse or to one-up this person in my knowledge of social issues?
✅ Am I saying "Are you surprised?" when they're disappointed?
✅ Am I providing unsolicited advice?
